My name is Cristina Velker and I am the CEO and founder of Tina Velk Co.
Started in 2019 under the name Lost Messages Art, Tina Velk Co carries awesome signs, apparel, and wall art to spice up your life and home.
Originally, signs were not a part of the Tina Velk Co brand but in November of 2020, I began my journey on Facebook Marketplace.
Since then, I have helped over 1,500 happy customers get signs and other items delivered to their home with excellent customer service and super fast shipping.

Looking to the left you will see a short historical timeline of Tina Velk Co.
I was born in 1994 in Toledo, OH.
Growing up, drawing was always one of my favorite things to do and I almost always got in trouble for drawing during school. The teachers claimed I was not paying attention, however, drawing always helped me focus more.
In 2015 while living with my mom, I decided I wanted to create my own website dedicated to my artwork. I did start to create something back then but did not get very far. I have ideas from this time period that I am going to impliment on this website in the future also. I did sell my drawing "Lost Messages" to a woman who lived in Florida in 2015 as well.
In 2019, that is when my idea really came to life. I decided to call the website Lost Messages Art because I could not think of anything else at the time and Lost Messages was the name of the first drawing that I sold to someone. I was not a big fan of the name but knew I had to pick something.
In early 2021, I finally came up with a name for the company, Tina Velk Co. This name suits the company much better and is what I am going to use for now until the far future.
Speaking of future, I have many great things in store, so please check back often!
